RUSH: Here is Brian, Orlando, Florida. Great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: How are you doing, sir?
RUSH: Well, somebody finally waited for me to answer. Doing great. Thank you.
CALLER: (laughing) Yeah, I’ve been a listener for a long time, been listening since you hooked me with the Clinton video where he was at the funeral, walked along laughing, saw the camera, started crying. I laughed so hard I couldn’t believe it. But, yeah, I just bought my grandsons — I’ve gotten a 12-year-old and a 7-year-old the Rush book, Rush Revere, and they want to know if they can get Rush and Liberty action figures. They want to have their own adventures.
RUSH: You know, Rush and Liberty action figures.
CALLER: Like Batman, Superman —
RUSH: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
CALLER: He’s just another hero, only he’s an American, all-American hero.
RUSH: Yeah. You know, you’re putting me on the spot here. There’s an answer to your question. I mean, there is a full-fledged answer to your question. It’s just not the time, but there is an answer to your question. This is as close as I can get. We’re just beginning here. We’re just beginning, but I’m flattered.
CALLER: Next would be the cartoon.
RUSH: (laughing) You know, you’re rendering me speechless, and nobody can do that, outside of Kathryn. So you want action figures and a cartoon?
CALLER: Anything to help the kids learn how to grow up in America and be an American.
RUSH: Yeah. Well, you know what? I can’t thank you enough. Now, Brian, I want you to stay on hold ’cause I want to send you and your kids the audio copy of the book read by me as a gift. Just sit out there, be cool, be patient. Be patient. You’re amazing, sir. I just can’t say anymore.
RUSH: Somebody just asked me if I’ve been nominated for a Grammy for my reading of Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims. Obama got two Grammys, one for each of his autobiographies. I told the guy, I wouldn’t wait for that. I wouldn’t think me being nominated for a Grammy is in the cards.
RUSH: I’m being asked if I happened to see the review in the Des Moines Register of Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, and I did. John Carlson is the name of the man who reviewed it, and it’s a really great review of the book. We’ll link to it at RushLimbaugh.com. (interruption) No, I didn’t print it out because this was gonna be a day where I wasn’t gonna talk about the book, but you had to go ahead and give me a call.
You know, I’m trying not to wear people out on this, so I didn’t print it out. I wasn’t gonna read it. We’ll link to it at RushLimbaugh.com. People can go to the website and see it, or the Des Moines Register website. It’s by John Carlson. It really is a nice review of the book. This guy gets it. It’s clever, and it’s not slobbering or any of that. It’s just a real solid review of the book.
Look, since this has come up, let me tell you something that we’re doing at the TwoIfByTea.com website, because we’re getting lots of e-mail from people who are loving it — and, folks, again, I’m really touched by all of this. We’re getting e-mails from people who are encouraging us to reach out to schools, ’cause people understand what this is. Mr. Carlson at the Des Moines Register gets it.
This is an attempt to correct the historical record as it’s been distorted in the public school system. The truth about the Pilgrims and the people that came to this country at first has been lied about to way too many kids in this country, and the book, of course, is to correct that record. People are so into the mission hereof that they’re actually encouraging us to reach out to schools.
What they’re asking us to do is to get the book, Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, to be a part of the curriculum, or at least in the school library. They’re asking us to do this. It’s a sizable number of people. Here’s what we’ve decided to do. If you go to TwoIfByTea.com and click on the Adventures of Rush Revere pane… There are three panes there at the bottom. If the click on the Adventures of Rush Revere you’ll find information on this.
We set up a free challenge. Rush Revere and Liberty are seeking the most deserving school or schools in the country to receive a large donation, not just the book, Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims. We’re gonna donate some American classics written by authors like Mark Twain. In addition, the school or schools that we choose will receive computers, supplies and any tangible items that would improve their classrooms.
It’s a contest of sorts, 500 words or less.
Let Rush Revere and Liberty know why your school or your kid’s school or an impoverished school that you know of is most deserving. It’s just that simple. Now, you have to get your entries in by November 30th. That’s 11 days from now. It’s a perfect thing to work on during Thanksgiving — and speaking of Thanksgiving, there’s a very cute free art contest.
Your kids can download a picture of Liberty the horse to color and come up with the best caption. You can download Rush Revere and the kids can color it in, and all of this is at TwoIfByTea.com. But we really are responding to people who are begging us to get the book into schools somehow. So it’s all explained there at the Adventures of Rush Revere pane at TwoIfByTea.com, and we are responding to what is just a terrific idea from people and public demand.
So Rush Revere and Liberty are seeking the most deserving school or schools (it could be more than one) to get a large donation. It’s not just of the Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims book, but other American classics written by authors like Mark Twain — and maybe computer supplies for schools that are impoverished. It’s all explained there TwoIfByTea.com on the Adventures of Rush Revere pane.
